Jacob Wonderbar and the Cosmic Space Kapow
by Nathan Bransford (Author)
288 pages

Booktalk: Jacob Wonderbar is used to detentions, but when a spaceship crashes near his house, he finds himself in a whole new level of trouble. After swapping a corn dog for the ship, he and his two best friends, Sarah Daisy and Dexter, take off on a madcap adventure…

Snippet: Suddenly the street lit up and there was a flash in the forest, almost like an explosion without sound. A green laser shot up into the sky and then disappeared just as quickly. A moment later there was a faint whirring sound and a hiss. Then the street was silent again.
